Abstract
The Recognized Maritime Picture (RMP) is defined as a composite picture of activity over a maritime area of interest. In simplistic terms, building an RMP comes down to finding if something is there or not, and determining what it is, what it is doing, and whether some type of follow-up action is required. The process of data fusion is absolutely critical to the production of an RMP. An indecipherable picture is worse than no picture at all, regardless of how many contacts are on the plot. This paper presents an information fusion system that correlates and fuses information from sensor data sources. Instead of fusing source data directly, this fusion system, named Adaptive Fuzzy Logic Correlator (AFLC), fuses information from two communication systems, the TACELINT and the Cortex expert system developed by Lockheed Martin Canada. The AFLC also provides a file editor that can edit and display contacts over any region of interest, and set fuzzy membership function.
